I grew up in Montgomery and moved to Tuscaloosa to attend UA in 2008. I fell in love with this city, and I now live in Northport with my husband, Tyler. We love to travel and visit new places. I enjoy kayaking, reading, art, and gardening. I loved playing basketball when I was younger and still enjoy playing occasionally. I have always wanted to be a teacher, and I love teaching GATE!

Users of Yahoo and Gmail email services, should check your SPAM, or TRASH folders for emails from 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. You may mark those as 'non-spam' to continue to receive registration notifications.
It is very important that your child is at school each day. Class begins at 7:50 AM and ends at 2:42 PM. Your child is tardy after 7:58 and must be signed in at the office.
Attendance is essential in your child’s education. Please make being on time and staying all day as a top priority this year.
Children arriving at school before 7:30 AM will be considered part of the Early Morning Program. This program starts at 6:40 AM and lasts until 7:30 AM. The cost is $2.00 per day.
The buses unload at the back door, car riders at the front door. Please, unless your child participates in the Early Morning Program, do not allow your child to come in the front door until 7:30. This is a safety issue. All students go immediately to the cafeteria if they have not eaten breakfast or to the designated hallway. Breakfast begins at 7:30 and the children are dismissed to their classrooms at 7:50.
Bus Riders 2:42 PM
Car Riders 2:44 PM
Extended Day 2:46 PM
Please make sure your child and his/her teacher knows how to get home each day. Students will go home based on the information provided on the registration form. If your child ever needs to go home in a way different from his/her normal routine, we must have a note. We cannot accept telephone calls to make changes to normal afternoon routine. A note or fax must be given to the school. This is a safety issue.
If your child plans to go home with another student, both parents please send a note home informing the teachers of the change in routine.
